northeast state community college in the tri cities that will be directly tied to advanced manufacturing in the region. the budget also allows for a much-needed multi- purpose classroom and lab building at nashville state community college as it continues to grow exponentially in middle tennessee. another constant theme we heard in our statewide discussions is that there is no substitute for direct and timely communication and cooperation between businesses and educational institutions. i am really excited about a new state-of-the-art technology center in smyrna that represents a unique public- private partnership with nissan. the center won't only be committed to training employees to work at nissan but will teach the skills that other area businesses need as well. this project is exactly what we need to be doing across the state to directly link tennesseans to high quality jobs by being deliberate in providing relevant training for those jobs.
